Reinsman Molly Powell: Quick Turn Argentine "X" Flat Sweet Iron Snaffle Mouth
519 “X” Flat Sweet Iron Snaffle Mouth
5” Cheeks 5” Mouth
“X” Flat Sweet Iron Snaffle. DESIGNED BY MOLLY POWELL. This is one of my favorite bits of all time!! This bit will help you make quick, snappy turns. The design of this Argentine snaffle is very pleasing to most horses, and the square shape of the mouthpiece helps you to get a lot of feel when you cue him around a barrel. I will use this bit on a horse that is very bendy, as it will invite a horse to balance himself in a turn. – Molly Powell – 10-Time NFR Qualifier and million dollar barrel racer
Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina. The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth. Mullen relief is used on all our snaffle mouthpieces which is a forward curve that creates even pressure across the bars and tongue to eliminate the nutcracker effect.
Moving from Direct Reining to Neck Reining? Stage B is all about transition, with the introduction of leverage and curb pressure. Short Shanked bits and Half-Gags comprise Stage B.
